This year Ana Claire has made it very clear she wants NOTHING to do with Santa. I showed her this photo of her sitting on his lap from last year. She looked at me and said I NOT do that.
When I have taken her to the mall and passed by the area where Santa is, she just looks the other way like he is't even there.
Since she has had a fear of men I don't want to traumatize her by putting her on a strange man's knee. It isn't worth the trauma. She has come such a long way with this issue, I don't want to make her regress. So I guess we will have to enjoy her photo from last year and hope that maybe she will sit with Santa next year.
After all Jesus is the reason for the season!
Seven days left until Christmas!
